The center is also home to a satellite VA outpatient clinic that serves 850 veterans and which Tanner’s office was instrumental in keeping open in 2002. The visit is part of Congressman Tanner’s 19-county tour of the 8th Congressional District talking with medical providers, patients, families, small business owners and others about health care reform.

“We want to hear ideas on how to fix the parts of our health care system that are broken and keep the parts that work,” Tanner said. Tanner will also host two telephone town halls on Aug. 28 and Aug. 31 where all 8th District residents from more than 200 towns and communities can talk together about the issues surrounding health care reform.
